K225. Most Unusual Iron Thin Plate Tsuba with Shakudo Dragons
K225. Iron tsuba with shakudo dragons. 8.7 x 8.9 x .3 cm at the slightly raised rim. The nakago hitsu-ana is .8 x 2.5 cm. The iron plate is 2 mm (quite thin) ad covered in tekkotsu; the dragons are great. Unfortunately, one of the dragons has lost his head, a pity because this once was a very special tsuba. If not for the loss I'd be asking a lot more for this one but, alas, it is what it is. Wonder what a competent tsuba-shi would charge to replace the loss. $175.
